Lyrics:
With your lips red like match heads, my eyes crying kerosene
You polished the hatchet in the sweat of a fever dream
I've been waiting up for you, running around in your name
Though the difference in volume you know it came through just the same

My eyes red like sunset, my heart like a glass balloon
Well I want to go home now but they said it'd be over soon
I've been waking up for you, the tossing and turning won't pass
Said the weight's in the journey, if you count on making it back

Oh I'm drowning again
The sparks from the fire all filled to the brim
And oh, when it starts to dim
Your kerosene kisses are keeping it lit

Your ribs just a casket for a heart that’s been buried alive
Your insides been crying to be released back to the light
And although I’m screaming, the gust from my wail
Just a ghost through the holes in your sail

Oh I'm drowning again
The sparks from the fire all filled to the brim
And oh, when it starts to dim
You kerosene kisses are keeping it lit

Your ribs just a casket for a heart that’s been buried alive
Your insides been crying to be released back to the light
And although I’m screaming, the gust from my wail
Just a ghost through the holes in your sail

Your mind's been a tyrant, boot heel in the jaw of your love
My heartbreak a thunder clap down from the heavens above
I’ve been tearing out pages and throwing them into the wind
Said the weight's in the journey if you remember where you've been

Your lips locked like safeties, the trigger awaiting release
Your sigh spitting gunpowder out through the cracks in your teeth
I've been screaming out for you, each word just an axe in the log
Cause the louder I'm yelling the sooner that you'll be gone

Your ribs just a casket for a heart that’s been buried alive
Your insides been crying to be released back to the light
And although I’m screaming, the gust from my wail
Just a ghost through the holes in your sail

about

Geometrist Boston, Massachusetts

Geometrist came to fruition in the sweaty depths of a booze-soaked basement in Allston, MA. The self-proclaimed “weird” district of Boston served to be the perfect home for Geometrist to begin shaping their sound in late 2012. They have been creating folk-inspired indie-rock music together, and storming the Boston music scene with their brand of rock ever since. ... more
